★★★★★ "A masterfully constructed character study from a great director operating on a whole new level." - Empire Magazine.
Written and directed by Christopher Nolan, Oppenheimer is an epic thriller that thrusts audiences into the pulse-pounding paradox of the enigmatic man who must risk destroying the world in order to save it.
The film stars Cillian Murphy as J. Robert Oppenheimer and Emily Blunt as his wife, biologist and botanist Katherine “Kitty” Oppenheimer. Oppenheimer also stars Oscar® winner Matt Damon, Oscar® winner Rami Malek, Academy Award® nominee Florence Pugh, Robert Downey, Jr., Benny Safdie, Michael Angarano and Josh Hartnett. The film reunites Nolan with eight-time Oscar® nominated actor, writer and filmmaker Kenneth Branagh.
The film is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer by Kai Bird and the late Martin J. Sherwin.
★★★★ "Christopher Nolan has done it again. He’s taken a historical story we know a bit about and turned it into an edge-of-the-seat, heart-in-the-mouth drama." - The Australian
